New Model: Overmarine Mangusta 72

Overmarine headed to this year Genoa boat show with a new renovated Mangusta 72, which updates this successful model mostly onboard in many areas from more powerful engines to a redesign of all the layout from the main to the lower deck.  A notable most important difference of the new Mangusta 72 is the back enclosure patio door, which makes the hard-top salon now completely closed.  The new patio door is made of crystal with smoked glass and features access from two sliding partitions which open the area to the aft deck. Thanks to the patio door the interior layout and design are thoroughly renovated, with the main deck now allowing for the stairs to be completely opened and accessible. The now enclosed living room is casually opulent, with the area becoming covered or open thanks to the hydraulic sliding roof, and patio door which gives a formidable flexibility to the use of this space.  Accessing the lower deck there is another salon equipped with big windows and then three cabins, each with its own bathroom. The Master is full beam with light flowing through four portholes. The Mangusta 72 also features a large galley that allows easiness in cooking as well as relax corner for the crew.  The design philosophy of this stunning yacht was to strike with a new furniture and interior style. Contemporary materials are used: Wengewood floors throughout the boat tastefully match the brown leather headboards in the rooms, as well as the Emperador dark marble in the bathrooms; while the natural oak panels and furniture are elegantly contrasted with satin stainless steel joints.   The exterior offers an array of enjoyment possibilities with a large sunbed and access to the water toys in the garage.  The Overmarine Mangusta 72 also receives new power comes from twin MTU 1600hp, an extra of 100hp to the previous set up which with the Arneson surface drives combination deliver a top speed of 40 knots.
